First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic—an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, and a wealth of audio, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.
Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of "mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose" (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that "distills the essence of America" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION
I've purchased & downloaded hundreds of iBooks to my iPad over the years. However, this iBook is the first one that I could not download. I'm not sure if the file is corrupt or what the situation is.
I spent 2 hours and tried every single trick I know (restarting my iPad; deleting & reinstalling iBooks; etc). No matter what I did, this ebook would NOT download.
Download one of the other versions of 'American Gods' instead.
One of my favorite reads, ever.
Recommend this book to Everyone!
Great author. Great book.
This novel has a fantasy feel to it, while still being rooted in modern America. It blends mythology with the trappings of our current culture. It is a great book, well written with interesting characters and a creative premise.The main character is likable, and it is interesting seeing his thought process and motivations while going through very extraordinary circumstances.
This was the first of Neil Gaiman's books that I read. I really enjoy Gaiman's writing, and have read most of his books - all of which I enjoyed, but American Gods is my favorite.
